Match Report

I can see a Carlos Vela yellow shirt coming my way very soon. The man is cooler than the other side of the pillow. I’ll be the first to say it, I think this team can beat our first team. At the very least they’ll score a couple goals on them. No doubt. A nice night at the Emirates, Arsenal lowered their prices for this game when they should’ve raised them.

Who would’ve thunk that the Carling Cup would be the most enjoyable tournament this year? Watching these teenagers dismantle a full-strength premiership team brings joy to the cockles of my heart’s heart. The look on that fuck Titus Bramble’s face when he gets schooled by a kid old enough to be his son is just priceless. Let’s not have a letdown this weekend otherwise this feeling of happiness and joy is going to disappear real fast.

    Nice turnaround on the highlights. Missed the 2nd goal, got to see it 15 mins later. :) But no, these kids could not beat the first team…I mean, most play once a month max, and are totally wired for it. Even if they had to do it once every 2 weeks, they wouldn’t have the same mental/physical energy.

    But Vela…holy shit. He needs to be given some first team time. We need him and Walcott on the same pitch…just terrifying for a defense.

    Vela is definitely way better than Bendtner. We need him in the first team.

    Love the fact that young Jack wasn’t old enough to drink his own Man-of-the-Match champagne. The kids are indeed all right.

    Well How does Bendtner get into the team instead of Vela I think Bendtner is the biggest lot of shit I have seen in am Arsenal Shirt he misses far more goals than Ade and boy does he miss some also think Ramsey should be in the midfield but above all Wilshire we be world class if Fab decides to go Wiltshire will take his place and believe me we wont even miss Fab and I love him To Bits come on THE KIDS.

    Vela is amazing!!! Definitely the gunners need him on the 1st team!!!

    Thanks for the upload! great site!

  18. Tosser said

    Bendtner and Vela. Yeah. The exact same strikers. Easily just swap one for the other. Come on… Vela was outstanding but he does not fill the same role as Nicklas. Go kids!

    “And Burnley wins the Penalty Shoot-out! And in the first time in 6 years, Chelsea fail to make the Quarter-Finals!” Gotta love how the commentator puts it.

    “PALYVUCHENKO!!! 3-0 Spurs! And Liverpool really have their work cut out!”

    Brilliant goal, what a finish. As ever Arsenal have a wonderful youth team and Wenger has a habit of bringing them on quickly.

    Why the abuse of Titus Bramble though? What has he ever done to you? Show a bit of respect.
